    the Oleg Cassini’s are pretty (I tried on one when I was looking and was almost sold on it!)

    but I just love the Allure dress on you!  It’s really flattering and the ruffles are gorgeous!

    Oooooh, I like the first one on you. It is so flattering! And I think it does have hints of the second one at David’s Bridal. My vote would be Allure -1 , first DB – 2, second DB – 3. If that makes sense. πŸ™‚

    I LOVE the two new David’s bridal dresses.  But then, I’m a sucker for vintage-style looks.  I’d go with the first one and keep the sash.  I really think it’s gorgeous.

    Ok here goes:

     

    Surprisingly, I love the Alure gown with the ruffles!  You wear it so well.  I prefer that it’s fitted down to your hips.  Slimming!!!   Oleg gown (#2) Please don’t wear it!  It makes you look bigger than you are!  You have a great shape and this dress hides that.  The waist hits you too high.  Third dress, very pretty.  Softer than the second.

     

    But, my vote is for dress #1!

    The allure is amazing on you! And, the construction and fabrics on allures gowns are so much better… 

    The 2 davids make you look a lot heavier than you are

    Ok, wait.  I just went to make dinner and thought about my post.  I probably could have worded the “please don’t wear that” better.  My apologies.   I meant to say, the first dress looks SO much better on you.  

    Reminds me of this gown I feel in love with.  It was GORGEOUS, had a similar cut to the Oleg too.  I loved it.  BUT, it was all wrong on me.  πŸ™  So sad.  Cause I loved that dress.   I feel the same with this Oleg on you.  I have seen the dress in person, I tried it on too.  I LOVED it, so fun, flirty….I totally see the appeal.  But it looked like poo on me.  Luckily, it doesn’t look like poo on you, but I think it’s a difficult dress to wear.  All that fabric adds a lot of weight to not-fat brides.

    I voted for the Oleg Cassini #1.

    I ruled out the first dress because it’s the one that doesn’t flatter your figure (sorry, I’m minority here). But if you give it a hard look (ie as if it weren’t you in the gown but another person) you would notice that your waistline “comes out”, meanwhile the breasts don’t fill it in the upper portion and the bottom is small when compared to your waistine. So unless you plan to loose weight around your midsection I would rule this dress out (please, notice, I’m not dissing at you — I don’t want you to take it the wrong way, I’m saying these things because you’ve asked for feedback and I want to help you look at your best!).

    I also ruled out Oleg Cassini’s #2 because it is less flattering that Oleg Cassini’s #1. In fact if you look at the bodices of the two gowns, you’ll notice how you look way smaller when in Oleg Cassini’s first dress. This is because the Oleg Cassini’s #1 has diagonal draping which elongates your torso whereas Oleg Cassini’s #2 has horizontal draping which makes your torso look wider (horizontal stripes and drapings are for the superskinniest or the flat chested girls — in the latter case they look good only when the horizontal draping is on their breasts).

    Hope this helps!

    keep in mind also that the allure is about 2 sizes to big on her…. so that’s why her boobs don’t fill it out πŸ˜‰

    I think fitted to you it will look smashing!

    The Allure gown is beautiful and it looks fantastic on you. If I can be brutally honest for a minute, I don’t like the material in the photo of the Allure – it looks kind of cheap. Hopefully it’s just bad picture quality cause I love it on you.

    Also, in the 1st David’s Bridal shot, I see some shoes in the background at the bottom hem of the dress. It’s the same shoes I wore a few months ago when I was a BM in a crazy as batshit bridezilla from hell’s wedding. The.most.uncomfortable.shoes.in.the.world. We all thought it was another way the crazy bride thought of to make us even more misarable on her wedding day. Seeing those shoes made me shudder.

    It sounds like you like #2 the best?  All these opinions and we didn’t really ask you what you like and dislike about each gown.  What are YOUR thoughts babe?
